Privacy Policy

This privacy policy reviews how Shaftesbury Emerald I Inc. and Shaftesbury Emerald II Inc. (“we” or “us”), the producer of the series “Emerald Code”, “Emerald Code: Decoded” and the related website, may collect, use and disclose your personal information. In doing so, we will comply with the terms of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”). This policy may be changed from time to time and, if changed, the changes will be posted here. If we ask for any personal information from you, such as your name, address, email address, age, etc., we will either set out the purpose for asking at the time of our request, or the purpose will be implied. For example, in order to become a member of the Fan Hub, you will be required to provide your name and email address. You may also have the opportunity to provide additional information about you in order to receive exclusive Emerald Code content not available to the general public. An example of an implicit purpose would be the request for IPs, for the purposes of enabling users to download files. You are, of course, never obligated to provide us with your information (with the understanding, of course, that you may not have access to all information or materials on the Site if you decline to do so). All information we receive about you will only be used for the following purposes:

  • in order to provide and optimize the requested service/product;
  • for administrative purposes;
  • for security;
  • to further develop our service/product and to provide improvements that will target its functions more specifically to its user group;
  • for research, statistical, promotional and analytical purposes. Any published analytics or information will be on an anonymous basis and will not contain any information that identifies who you are; and/or
  • to comply with applicable legal obligations.
  • contest entry and prize fulfillment and promotion where applicable

We will keep any information your provide confidential and will not sell, rent, transfer or disclose your personal information to any third party, except:

  • in order to provide and optimize the requested service/product;
  • in the event of a corporate merger or acquisition or other corporate transaction; or
  • if we rely on a third party to help us in developing and delivering our service/product; and/or
  • if and as required by law.

If that happens, however, we will still only use your information as set out in this policy and we will ensure that the third parties we share your information with agree to keep it confidential and to use it only for the agreed purpose. The Emerald Code website contains links to our partners. This privacy policy only covers the way Shaftesbury Emerald I Inc. and Shaftesbury Emerald II Inc. collects and uses information. It does not cover information you provide separately to our partners if you link through to their sites. They may have different policies and your information, if you provide it to them, will be subject to those policies. Shaftesbury Emerald I Inc. shall in no way be responsible for information you provide to our partners or otherwise in connection with third party sites. This privacy policy is governed by the laws of the province of Ontario. If you have any questions about this policy, you can contact us at
